- 2017 Wednesday: Republican lawmakers launch their first bid- under the incoming Trump administration to repeal the Affordable Care Act. President-elect Donald J. Trump drives the left bonkers again by tweeting Julian Assange’s claim that ‘Russia was not behind the leak of Hillary Clinton’s emails.’
- 2018 Thursday: Lifelong member of the Moody Blues[iii]– flautist Ray Thomas- died in Surrey, United Kingdom, on this date. Elsewhere, to the delight of millions of Americans who want to see America restored to the pedestal of greatness, President Donald J. Trump announces he will open almost coastal waters to offshore drilling. Meanwhile, the controversial- mostly fictional book by author Michael Wolff- “Fire and Fury”- one President Trump supposedly tried to quash- hits U.S. bookstands today. Note- it died a quick death.
- 2019 Friday: In Rancho Santa Fe, California, the former 14th U.S. Secretary of Defense Harold Brown died at age 91. A Democrat, he served under President Jimmy Carter from 01-21-1977 to 01-20-1981.

Trump.
- 2020 Saturday: Following the droning of Iranian General Qassim Soleimani, Democrats are screaming and crying of dreadful things to come and warning that President Trump is usurping powers not meant for the president but for Congress. Oh, well. Elsewhere, in the early AFC Wildcard Game, the Houston Texans beat the Buffalo Bills by a score of 22-19. In the late AFC Wildcard Game, the Tennessee Titans knock off the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots by a final score of 20-13.
- 2021 Monday: A top NSA official informs the British government that the Chi-Coms did indeed loose the dreaded Chi-Vi- aka the Kung Flu, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Chi-Com Virus, the Chinese Virus, Yellow Fever 2020, etc.- on the world on purpose. Time to begin preparing those lawsuits for the Hague to punish the Chi-Coms for waging germ warfare on the world. Elsewhere, the lovely president of the totalitarian state of Iran- Hassan Rouhani- declares, once again, that President Donald J. Trump will be dead in a few days. Lovely people, lovely, time to nuke them. Anyhow, Israel slaps back at the Iranians for saying their country is trying to engineer a way by which the Trump administration will go to war with the jihadist Islamic republic.
- 2021 Monday A: Pope Francis (another lovely human being) criticizes those who have gone on holiday so as to escape the authoritarian COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions imposed on them by fascist leaders. Pope Francis- please, STFU. Next, Mexican President Lopez Obrador offers WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange asylum following a British judge declaring he will NOT be extradited to the United States to face trial. President Trump- pardon this man. Elsewhere, following the Tel-Cos cuts to the BIG THREE Chi-Com telecommunications companies- China Mobile Ltd., China Telecom Corp., and China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd., Chi-Com oil majors may undergo delisting on the NYSE. About time the communist country faced punishment for their innumerable crimes.
- 2021 Monday B: Things in Georgia are getting crazy what with the state government doing everything to defy President Trump in his quest for redress over the corrupt and fraudulent election on November 3. A phone call between the 45th president and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is leaked by the secretary himself in an effort to make the president look bad. While Secretary Raffensperger continues calling it the ‘most secure election in history,’ anyone who watched the testimony before a Georgia senate subcommittee this past week on OAN understands that it was anything but. The lieutenant governor of the Peach State- Geoff Duncan- leapt onto Trump’s back by accusing President Trump of trying to steal the election. This led California Democrat Congressman Ted Lieu- another tool of the Chi-Coms- to send a referral to the FBI to prosecute the president for trying to engineer election fraud. When the bodies begin dropping, Congressman, you will have only yourself to blame, you little c***sucker.
- 2021 Monday C: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden says he will replace the inaugural parade with a short walk to the White House. Meanwhile, to the dismay of all, Arkansas GOP Senator Tom Cotton says, ‘contesting the election is beyond the powers of Congress.’ Looks like “Cocaine Mitch” got to you, senator. Sad to see you cross over to the DARK SIDE. Elsewhere, another RINO Senator Marco Rubio says that ‘both Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock are unqualified to serve in the U.S. Senate.’ We agree. However, recent polls show both Democrats with a 51-47 percent lead over both Republicans. C’est la vie.
- 2021 Monday D: A Harvard space expert says, ‘the Earth has been visited, monitored by alien life.’ We wish some of that alien life would show up right about now and wipe out the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, the Russians, Venezuelans, Cubans, North Koreans, the Democratic Party, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the Fake News Media. How about it? Meanwhile, the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams says that ‘mitigation efforts are essential’ what with the arrival of the new strain of the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Meanwhile, the U.S. eyes half-doses of the Moderna vaccine in order to hasten the roll-out of the anti-viral. Elsewhere, the IRS says the executors of the Prince estate cut its worth by 50-percent. Not good.
- 2021 Monday E: Newsmax reports that after a pastor in an East Texas church found a thug hiding in his house of worship for whom law enforcement was searching, the reverend drew his gun on the man but was quickly disarmed by the POS who then shot him dead, wounded two others, and then stole the vehicle and sped away.
- 2021 Monday F: Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wins another term as speaker by a vote of 220 for her while 192 voted for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. The aged speaker whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist has the slimmest majority in history, a ‘majority’ of 10 seats.
- 2021 Monday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 85,555,275 confirmed cases, +570,221, 1,849,949, confirmed deaths, +8,827, and 48,058,025 confirmed recoveries, +280,467. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,933,546 confirmed cases, up 337,286 from yesterday’s reporting, 355,836 confirmed deaths, UP 2,527, and 9,351,020 confirmed recoveries, UP 127,459.
- 2021 Monday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,444,466 confirmed cases, 26,638 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 22,049 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 258,557 confirmed cases, 3,524 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let us look at one other state: Louisiana: currently, they have 322,881 confirmed cases, 7,585 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 445,845 confirmed cases, 3,435 confirmed deaths, and 390,287 confirmed recoveries.
- 2020 Monday I: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,223.89, DOWN 382.59 points (-1.25%). Next, the NASDAQ: 12,698.45, DOWN 189.45 points (-1.47%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,700.65, DOWN 55.42 points (-1.48%). The price of GOLD is $1,948.00 per troy oz., +1.40 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.42 per troy ounce, +0.051 (+0.19%).

The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.33 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.61%). Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan. Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.94.
- 2021 Monday J: Indiana announces it will host the entire NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Meanwhile, the Trump administration announces that a breakthrough between Qatar and other Arab Persian Gulf states has been reached in patching up their quarrel. Elsewhere, USAF personnel in Germany begin receiving their vaccinations for the Chi-Vi. Finally, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, labels NBC’s Chuck Todd’s barrage on him while the senator was appearing on his Sunday show as highly ‘unprofessional’ which it was.
- 2021 Monday K: Mayor Muriel Bowser, the horrible woman who runs Washington, D.C., called out the National Guard to be prepared for ‘trouble’ when hundreds of thousands and possibly a million or more Trump supporters arrive in the nation’s capital on Wednesday. She could care less that her beloved Antifa and Black Lives Matter mobs riot in the streets, accosting anyone they suspect of being a Trump supporter in the streets. Mobs such as what we just mentioned are what keeps Chief Justice John Roberts of the United States Supreme Court trembling in his bed at night. Meanwhile, President Trump held a massive rally in Georgia today in support of Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue. Elsewhere, outgoing Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos urges Congress to reject the policies of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his consort, Kooky Kamala Harris, should these two losers become president and vice-president.
- 2021 Monday L: The Pentagon says the USS aircraft carrier Nimitz and her accompanying flotilla will remain on station in the Persian Gulf following all of the threats against President Donald J. Trump, as well as Trump administration officials, spilling out of the foul mouths of the Iranian leadership. We hope to see them nuked before much longer. Meanwhile, the CIA’s new recruitment website seeks to diversify the agency. Should have been done decades ago…speaking of the Central Intelligence Agency, a private cybersecurity company, FireEye, says the Russian cyberattack on numerous targets in the United States occurred within the United States. Not good. Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘communist China and North Korea’ are President Trump’s ‘unfinished business.’
- 2021 Monday M: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s first major act picking up the gavel again is to force ALL House members to use BS gender neutral terms so as NOT to hurt anyone’s feelings. Wow. Really important there, almost makes one long for getting nuked by the Chi-Coms to stop stupidity such as this. The Reverend Franklin Graham blasts “Mumbles” Pelosi for doing this. Meanwhile, the state of Georgia in a big show says, ‘it’s going to investigate charges of voter fraud and suppression in the two run-off races taking place TOMORROW.’ Amazing. Elsewhere, the United States Marine Corps begins preparing for conflict with the Chi-Coms by conducting island warfare exercises.
- 2021 Monday N: We encourage everyone to stick around to discover whatever scurrilous goings-on are occurring today as the Chi-Coms continue trying to force their Manchurian candidate “Pro-China Joe” Biden and Manchurian candidate #2 Kooky Kamala Harris into office at the expense of the nation. Stick around and discover WTF the communists-socialists are up to today.
